Zebra Technologies has signed an agreement with PartServe Channel Support to carry out product warranties throughout the South Africa region.

Increased channel demand and the 23% growth in Zebra's business in the South Africa have prompted Zebra to establish a centralised warranty solution with a leading solutions partner. This is a new program in South Africa and had to be customised to local conditions. In the agreement, PartServe, will provide the  complete warranty management.
"We required a warranty service provider operating in conjunction with Zebra to develop the program. PartServe was an obvious choice and at present is the only Independent Zebra Authorised Service Provider (IZASP) in the South Africa region," comments Debbie Hunter, SA channel account manager at Zebra  Technologies.
PartServe channel support director Lee Bowes comments: "PartServe is fast becoming the preferred provider of warranty management services in Southern Africa. This agreement enables PartServe to offer a carry-in warranty on all Zebra products nationwide, including Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town, Port Elizabeth and Bloemfontein. As the program develops we expect several new services to be added to the current warranty program."
In addition to the warranty program, PartServe will be stocking and distributing all spare parts for Zebra label printers to its channel.
